I have never actually opened one of my presents before I was allowed to but my brother, sister and I used to shake our presents and try and guess what was inside them. We still sometimes do that now.

When I was in high school my mother brought several boxes to me she had them all taped shut. She knew I loved to wrap gifts so she told me that they were gifts for relatives and would I wrap them. Of course I did and when I was finished she gleefully stated, "You have just wrapped all of your Christmas presents".

I never snooped because when I was younger my mother told me a story about her snooping and finding a doll, well she was somewhere and a Santa told her he knew she snooped (most likely info. came from my mother's aunt) so when she got up Christmas morning, no doll. It was a mean thing to do but back then people were more cut and dry, no in between.

Oh wow! My christmas eve/christmas day is an exact schedual that I have followed scince I can remember!
I wake up at 9.30 Christmas eve and I pull on my christmas gym suit then my dad and I go across the street to help him wrap presents at his mothers house (grandma satan ) (lol)
and his friend 'conveniently' shows up looking for him,so there for im left there doing all his work and being critisized on how im doing it.Then my mother calls over there to "save" me.Then I go to the mail and pick up my familys letters (and packages).I usualy watch tv for 2 hours then I go to town with my dad for batteries .As soon as I get home I put on macaroni and we eat.I then get a bath and get to open up my pjays.I usualy hurry and try to be ready by 7 but no matter what I do my family is out the door before me and out to my Grandmothers where everyone sitts in her living room and watches tv,talks ,whatever we usualy open a few of there presents to us and go home at 11 ish.Im usualy in a mad rush to set out "santas" milk and cookies and get to bed.The next morning im usualy awaken to my mom dad and brother jumping on my bed.I open my sock first and then presents , I go to my other Grandmas ( the one im at all the time,like now) and open another bunch of presents from santa too.After all of this I sleep and die a little inside
